Meet the Operator

         12 years ago, I began my journey with Chick-fil-A with the goal of becoming an Operator. In 2010, I attained that goal when I became the Operator of Chick-fil-A Southern Park in Boardman, Ohio. Now, as the Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A Howland, I am excited to bring great service to our guests and to develop a team that is second to none in the Warren/Niles/Howland area. We strive to have a team that not only treats our guests with honor, dignity and respect, but each other as well. Our goal, as a team, is to be “REMARKable people serving REMARKable food.” We look forward to serving you on your next visit to Chick-fil-A Howland!
